An Enterprise Developer’s Journey to the IoT

Burr SutterThe current hype around the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to a substantial amount of innovation thanks to open source software, open hardware, open standards, and community inspiration. And even enterprises start to use the new hardware out there to optimize their offerings. Time for the Virtual JBoss User Group (vJBUG) to look into it in more details and welcome a very prominent guest speaker. Red Hat’s Burr Sutter will be giving a session titled “An Enterprise Developer’s Journey to the IoT” on December 17th and I had the chance to sit down with him and ask some more detailed questions. Make sure to sign up on the vJBUG page and follow @vJBUG on Twitter for latest news.
